    My dear friend Vince my heart is heavy today. I will miss our laughs that we always had no matter what was going on we found something to laugh about together. I most admire the love and dedication you had for your girls. I never met them but I feel like I know them so well as they were all you spoke of. I just want to hug them and let them know they will make it through this. Please know that your family is in my prayers. I will miss you my dear friend. I was a true pleasure working with you.

    As a friend and a supervisor, Vince was very helpful, easygoing and full of humor. Kind as a person could be, and always fun to be around, I was truly saddened to hear of his passing. My thoughts to his family and especially his girls. May you rest in peace, Vince. You will be dearly missed.

    I have very fond memories of Vince ( and Kim) when Jean would visit Pete and Black. If I knew they were coming I would always bring a ball and my baseball mitt and enjoyed many an afternoon playing catch with Vince. I will always remember his grin. Rip. Please tell your Mom she is missed.

    Vince will truly be missed, he was the best manger I worked with, he was always there to help or show me new things, I learned a lot from Vince. He would always ask me was everything alright even on bad days. He left an real impact on his overnight Walmart family. Sending prayers to his family

    Charles, Kim & other Family members I am sorry to hear about Vince. I always remember the times we would visit in VB & he would play outside while Mom & Jean talked. Kim would try to watch him. Sometimes he would listen, most of the time he would tell his Mom. Also, it was so nice of him to help us at Mom's funeral. I wish we had more time to visit that day but there was so much going on. I guess the lesson for me to takeaway is I should have made time. I hope counsin Vince knows I appreciated his help, that I loved him and I will miss him! My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Love you!
